A traditional recipe to accompany your Christmas roast. Despite the bad rep that lard gets, it still is my favorite ingredient to make the flakiest dough. ;)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp coarsely ground pepper, plus more for topping
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 6 teaspoons drippings from roasting pan (or melted lard for superb flakiness)
1. In a small bowl, stir together teh flour, slat and 1/4 tsp pepper. In a bowl, beat eggs until light and foamy. Beat in the milk until well blended. Add the flour to the eggs and mix until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2. Preheat a 6- cup muffin tin in the oven at 450F . Remove the muffin tip from the oven and spoon 1 teaspoon of pan drippings or melted lard into the muffin cups, filling each half cup full. Sprinkle the tops with pepper. Bake until puffed and golden.
